Profile

Gaius Van Baelsar is a man known for great loyal ferocity in combat, lack of tolerance for cowards, and an intolerance for any who may stand in his way. He does not fear to strike down any man, woman, or child if it means victory for the might of the Empire he serves and has served for many years. Gaius Van Baelsar like so many in the Garlean military started as a humble soldier and had the honor of serving along side their mighty Emperor, Solus zos Galvus. For in he tempering of the many conquests, it had gained him great esteem with the Empror giving him the rank of Imperial Legatus, the position as the right hand to his Majesty, and the title of the Black Wolf. Yet such favors would not hold forever. As an Imperial Legatus, Nael Van Darnus, stepped in to take the very favor from Gaius with his own mad conquest, a conquest that ended their world of Hydaelyn and thrust it into the depths of the Multiverse. Now Gaius marches across the new vast world to not only explore the unknown regions, but to ready arms for the conquering of this world under the banner of the Garlean Empire. For he brings with him not only his deadly swordplay and his most loyal of troops, but also the technological wonder of the Garlean Empire known as "Magitek" -- and though the taste of failure still lingers on his lips, he will stop at nothing to see this wars victory to the bitter end.

Cold Heart: Gaius is a commander and soldier first before he is anything else. As such, he tends to display a very cold heart toward everyone he meets, including his enemies. Be it man, woman, or child, if they are on the wrong end of his blade, he will kill them with no remorse. Unless they can prove themselves worthy to 'live' and fight under the flag of the Emperor.

Pride: Gaius is a very prideful man. It is this very pride that keeps him from every bowing his head and at times will also hold his tongue on admitting he is wrong. It is also this that drives him to correct mistakes, but the will never admit to it. This can lead to frustrating moments and including at times he may even deny that to even be the case. He will also not call on aid and as many may tell him-- it is this Pride of his that may be his undoing.

Traditionalist: Gaius is no young man and is set in his ways. He has formed strategic habits of traditional means that carry over easily in his day-to-day choice making and planning of the battlefield. This makes those who fight him time and time again start to pick up on his habitual reactions to an action and what he may do if given a circumstance. He has shown while in combat he is not a type to resort to radical measures and is reliable to stick with what he is comfortable with; At least under normal circumstances.

Honorable: Some would argue that honor is not a flaw, but for Gaius, a man of great ferocity, it can be. It is his honor that keeps him at from carrying out a deadly sentence, thus holding back his hand in stead. He likes to give his opponents a fair chance in battle, to see what they can do when given that chance, and doesnt like to take advantage of situation -- even when it is right for the taking. He likes to see if he can push the best out of someone to make the battle meaningful, and it is this that one day could lead to his downfall.

Loyally Blind: Gaius is extremely loyal to the Empire. He is so loyal really that he is blinded by it. For in his mind what they are doing is just, righteous, and they are doing the region of Eorzea a favor by attempting to cleanse it of its false god filth. That the Empire knows what is best for the world as a whole and that it can do no wrong. In this very blind loyalty to the Empire he is also willing to sacrifice his very life for its cause and nothing anyone can say to him would or will change his mind.

Intolerance to Failure: Gaius is a man who cannot stand failure. He expects everyone to perform on the same level of aptitude as he does regardless of circumstance, or situation. Those who fail are sometimes given a chance to redeem themselves in other fashions, but, if you fail due to cowardice, then he will kill you. This kind of attitude causes problems for him in a number of ways, as he will be forced to prove himself, and it will cost him troops in the chaos known as the Multiverse.

Magitek Dependent: Gaius is skilled and powerful force to be reckoned with while in his Magitek gear; Without it, he's less capable in a number of ways. If someone were to strip him of his gear, then there would be a number of things in the Multiverse that could become a lot more problematic than otherwise. Since he is aware of this, he does keep a few trinkets on hand to escape, but if those are taken as well, then he loses the advantages he may have on the playing field.
